What is a glycolic skin peel?

There are several different types of skin peel. A glyolic peel is a superficial peel, which is perfect if you simply wish to replenish your skin and achieve a more youthful appearance.* Glycolic peels have no recovery time and you will be able to resume your daily routine almost immediately; if you are interested in a deeper skin peel, stronger concentration of glycolic peels can be applied or we recommend a TCA peel .

More FAQs

What is glycolic peel used for?

Can be used to exfoliate and replenish the skin, treat lines and wrinkles but also acne, acne scars, pigmentation and sun damaged skin. Different depths of glycolic peel are used to give different results.*

What areas can a glycolic peel treat?

Most clients use a skin peel to improve the appearance of their facial skin, but we can also administer peels to your neck, chest, back and hands

What happens during a peel treatment?

The procedure involves applying a glycolic solution to the area in question. This solution exfoliates the skin and speeds up natural cell renewal; you will effectively be left with a new layer of skin, one which looks fresher and more youthful.*

Is the skin peel procedure painful?

No, although you may experience a hot, itchy sensation once the solution is on your skin. This is completely normal, and should subside quickly.

Will my skin actually peel off?

For deeper peels you may experiencing some peeling of the skin, this will normally take place 24 hours after the peel and last for 2-3 days, to reveal a new layer of skin.

Full list of side effects, cautions and contraindications will be discussed at face to face consultation.

Treatment Reviews

Sarah Grace
"I attended Dr. Leah Clinics in central London for a course of skin peels for sun damage. i had 5 of the recommended 6 treatments and was told I actually didnt need anymore. My skin was smooth, even and wrinkle free. I even compared images from 5 years previous and had lines across my forehead. These are all gone. I am very impressed and would absolutely recommend for the best quality." *
